August 7th, 2022 LUG Jam

Looking forward to seeing everyone at our next in person jam!

When: Sunday, August 7th, 2022 4:30 PM

Strumming starts at 4:30 PM so please come a little early to claim your spot, grab a refreshment and tune your instrument. We will be having a short break midway through and finish up around 6:00 PM.

Where: Generations Market and Restaurant, 717 Lake Park Road, Carleton Place

We will be jamming by the side of the lake under a big top tent. Lots of room and plenty of chairs and tables so you can socially distance during the jam. Parking is plentiful and finding a spot will not be an issue.

Drinks and foods are available during the jam. For anyone staying for dinner afterwards we strongly recommend that you make reservations for 6:00 PM at 613-253-5253. Please support Generations.


We will be projecting the chords and lyrics during the jam. Most people find that they get the most enjoyment out of the jam by practising the set.

Where: Generations Market & Restaurant, 717 Lake Park Road, Carleton Place.

We will be jamming outdoors under the big tent along the shores of the Mississippi Lake. Rain or shine … there is lots of space inside under the tent with tables and chairs for all. Parking is plentiful for those arriving by car, the dock is in for those that prefer to take a boat and Generations is even close to the Ottawa Valley Recreational trail for those who choose to come by bike!

Drinks and food are available during the jam. For anyone wanting to stay for dinner afterwards on the Patio we strongly suggest that you make reservations for 6:00 PM at 613-254-5253.

When: July 17th, 2022 4:30 PM

Strumming starts promptly at 4:30 PM so make sure to come a little early to find your seat, tune up your ukulele and grab a refreshing beverage to support Generations for hosting us. We will be having a short break half way through and finishing up around 6:00 PM.


We will project the chords and lyrics during the jam. Most people find that they get the most enjoyment out of the set by practising prior to the jam. You can download a copy of the set (in PDF format) here:

June 5th, 2022 LUG Jam

When: Sunday, June 5th at 4:30 PM

Where : Generations Market and Restaurant 717 Lake Park Road, Carleton Place

We are very excited to announce we will have our first-person jam! We will be holding the jam under the big tent at Generations Market and Restaurant. Located on the shore of Mississippi Lake and offering great food and great beer I am sure you will have a great time. The tent has space for well over 150 people and is open sided so social distancing should not be an issue. For more details on the venue check out their web site.

Please note the jam is on a SUNDAY and is starting at 4:30 PM. This is more in line with the way we used to run our jams. Hope you can make it. After all this time we are looking forward to hearing everyone play and sing.

We are posting the jam set list so that you have an opportunity to practise the music prior to the jam. You may note that the set list is a little longer than it has been for several years. We are hoping to go back to the old format for our jams: running on a Sunday afternoon, with a longer set with a break part way through. We will be projecting the chords and lyrics during the jam.

As usual we have a copy of the set list’s chords and lyrics available in PDF format here:

For those with an iOS device with the OnSong app, you can get a copy of the set as an OnSong Archive here.

For people with a different song viewer application we also make the set available via a link in the song title to a ChordPro file.

May Jam Update

We had hoped to announce a return to an in-person jam this month. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans. As a result of the significant storms in Eastern and Southern Ontario, we have had to delay the jam until some time in June. The location we had chosen suffered damage and we cannot proceed with a jam until things are repaired. We feel that we should be able to announce the jam soon so stay tuned and keep strumming!
